EIL 486 introduces the topic of linguistics to language teachers. Unlike traditional theoretical linguistics courses, it makes explicit connections between the theory of linguistics and practical applications in individual classrooms. Students learn about the history of linguistics, and the role of key concepts in linguistic analysis with a focus on the sound system, words, grammar, meaning, and the social functions of language. Linguistic data will be analyzed to evaluate the practical applicability of linguistic theories. The course will culminate in a project in which each participant will apply their newly acquired understanding of the principles of linguistics to describe, analyze and solve linguistic problems in their own unique classroom settings (as teachers or learners). Professor: Dr. Hugh Bishop
